I am the youngest of 3 children. My dream growing up was to have kids of my own someday. My older sister and brother did not share that dream for themselves. They had many other amazing dreams for what God would do with their lives. I admire their courage to go “against the flow” and live joyful, full lives outside of the realm of parenthood that seems the “norm” for so many. However, I did mourn not having a blood niece or nephew of my own. So when, this past January, my sister called me to say that she was unexpectedly expecting, I was THRILLED!!! I had to keep that excitement stifled until she was “ok” with this new path the Lord had chosen for her and Alec. But oh the joy I see in these images of her as she embraces all that her Abba Father is growing in her womb and in her heart! It makes me even more thrilled!!!
Alece and Alec came to vacation with us at Hunting Island State Park about a week ago and we took advantage of the AH-MAZING scenery for a maternity shoot for her…. my gift to the sister who has given me so much over the years and is now giving me my very own NIECE!!!
On our way headed home, we stopped in LOVELY Beaufort for some shots with Alec… LOVED this spot that we randomly found!!!
